Jeffrey Sachs Interview at The Guardian About Economics and Ethics

I have started this interview after an introductory discussion, some words about the World Bank and its role in the world, and some innovative work that Sachs and others have been doing to improve the life of people in sub-Saharan Africa.

He begins to move now into a more general discussion now of economics and ethics after some explanatory comments on the Millenial Village movement in Africa.

If you wish to hear something more, here is a link to a talk which Jeff Sachs gave at the London School of Economics about the ideas in his book, The Price of Civilisation.
